Title: The Love Deception
Author: Jennifer St. George
Finished: June 27, 2013
This story hooked me from the first page, bringing the reader in to the drama from step one. Felicity Carter is a character you can instantly like by her determination and intuition. From the second we meet her, we know that she can be trusted but also has an adventure in store.
When she wakes up in a mysterious bed, in an unknown house with someone she’s never met before, her life takes the most interesting turn she’s ever had. When she comes face to face with her stranger again only days later, she is hit with another curve ball and force to constantly prove who she is and what she stands for. She’s a lawyer, not someone who wakes up with no memory in a strangers bed.
With so many misconceptions in front of them, Felicity doesn’t think anything will ever heal the initial drama that surrounded her budding relationship. All she can do is be her true self and prove there is more than that first impression to who she is.
I really enjoyed this book. It was a pretty quick read and fun to see the characters find each other and figure out their mistakes and fix them.
Title: Complete Me
Author: J. Kenner
Finished: June 25, 2013
Complete Me is the third book of Kenner’s Stark trilogy. I had been eying this series for quite some time after seeing it pop up as a recommendation. When I was presented with the opportunity to read this final book prior to its release, I jumped at the chance and tracked down the first two books for a quick read through to catch up.
Ever since Fifty Shades of Grey popped on the scene, more authors are getting the spotlight and I have to agree that Kenner does a fabulous job with this series.
Nikki Fairchild has escaped her past in search of a new start, but we all know that’s never how it goes. Only days into her adventure, she finds herself face to face with Damien Stark, a man she has fantasized about for years. It is anything but a warm and romantic reunion. If she had to guess, Nikki would think that Stark had no recollection of their prior meeting.
The first two books focus more on Nikki’s past and the growing relationship between her and Stark. As we enter the final book, gears shift and the reader is now finding out more about Stark and the thrilling conclusion to the cliffhanger of book three. Not only is the fate of Damien Stark up in the air, but so is the future of the couple that has captured hearts through their healing.
Nikki is slowly unraveling the truth behind who the man she loves is, and with each page, a layer is revealed and Damien Stark is revealed to us – “stark naked” and vulnerable. As the couple realizes how alike they really are, and how much they have grown, it is clear that nothing can truly tear them apart.
This was definitely a series worth reading. It is it’s own original series, with twists and turns, that keep you wanting and waiting for more. Even as I turned the last page, I wondered what the future had in store for this couple.
